Clos Troteligotte K-or Cahors 2020

A concentrated and dense wine with powerful black plum
and berry fruits tinged with dry notes of fresh thyme and
minerality, full of energy with a lovely purity of fruit.
Producer Note
The ever-innovative Emmanuel Rybinski is one of Cahor's up and coming young stars.
The 14 hectare vineyard is located atop an iron-rich plateau on the southern border of
the Cahors appellation and produces predominantly Malbec with 10% of the vines
dedicated to Merlot. Since its inception in 1987, respect for the land has been a priority
for this family estate and they have passionately committed to sustainable farming
practices. In 2014, Clos Troteligotte was certified in organic agriculture and 2015 saw
the beginnings of biodynamic viticulture. Passionate and dynamic, they are producing
outstanding, stylishly packaged Cahors wines from their unique terroir. Pronounced with
a French K "ka", their flagship wine K-Or is a play on words for Cahors.
Vineyard
Certified organic and biodynamic, the vineyard is cultivated organically, respecting the
environment and enabling the maximum expression of terroir. The 25 year old vines are
trained according to the simple Guyot method, with debudding and a green harvest
taking place during the course of the year to attain a yield of 40 hectolitres per
hectare. The soil is calcareous-clay-siderolithic, which is a red clay soil composed of
limestone and rich in iron, a rarity in Cahors. This unique terroir imparts minerality and
complexity to these outstanding wines.
Winemaking
The micro-plots were vinified separately, without the addition of sulphur during
vinification. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place prior to fermentation using
indigenous yeasts. A manual "pigeage" or punching down of the cap extracted the
colour and flavours, followed by a long maceration. The wine aged in unlined concrete
vats on its fine lees. Minimal sulphur was used at bottling.
Tasting Note
A concentrated and dense wine with powerful black plum and berry fruits which are
underpinned by mineral complexity. Smooth and spicy on the palate, with great
structure and a lovely purity of fruit.
